Alexandre David
From January 19th 2007 to February 24th 2007
Exposition solo

You walk into a room, feel the floor crack under your footsteps, or the hardness of the floorboards in your knees. You sit down on a chair and rest your arms on the table, you raise your head toward the ceiling to see how high it is, look at the ceiling light and the moldings, if there are any. The work shown here arose from the simple differentiation between a space one can only look at and a space that one can move around in. I have no desire to recapture this familiar spatial experience, nor to categorize architecture one way or the other. Our everyday architectural sensations are, however, a necessary background for my work.
- Alexandre David
